Favorite Quote:
"Don't follow in my footsteps, i run into walls."

Birds chirp
children laugh
the sun shines
a ship sails
together we are on board
(just don’t sink my battleship)
the car doors slam
tears fall miles
to the hot pavement below
(the pavement to carry you away)
turn the corner
a sinking ship
sunlight hidden behind clouds
the wailing of babies fills the air
the birds fall silent
the silence hurts
(almost as much as your leaving)
